Official: Allen Iverson Reebok shoe thread

31st January 2013 18:15
I know the black ones were the last i copped a pair of retro A.I til the A5 comes out or at least til RBK gives a real A4.... Not that fake looking and feeling shit, they just released... It was nice to see A.I shoes back but past that feeling, they aint worth going after them like that...
They deserve to sit on shelves til they end up on a 50% discount or some...

As for the white ones (go a few pages back to see my comments about them), there isnt much to like about the black ones...

Ye they stiff but that the least of my worries cuz as u said, after a few wears, it wont be a problem anymore...
My problem is that i used to love those shoes but the 2012 retros make me hate 'em... Quality isnt that good, material used are cheap and the most important to me, they not similar to the originals...

DMX foam, no steel Iverson face....And so on... Ive made numerous posts about how cheap those retros are and i think its enough...Ill keep on checkin for A.I retros but i think, unless they realease the ANswer V, i wont buy anymore retro out of the A.I line til they step it up...
As a real fan since he joined the league, and since i had a lot of the O.Gs i cant be satisfied with the retros... Ill wear them and im happy to have them...I needed a few pairs but thats it... RBK isnt doing a great job IMO...A bit disapppointed



Cheap materials? 95% of the shoe is full grain leather and it's soft as hell. You're making mountains out of molehills.

Nah seriously, they do feel cheap... When u put ur feet into em... It just doesnt feel right...And u sure about the leather? I thought it was two kind of leather on the shoe... Cuz the upper part is indeed soft...softer and feel less like plastic than the toe box...
95% of plastic sounds righter to me....
And i have the right to complain, i bought 4 pairs, and dont even feel like wearing them...
Actually, if they had released them in France, i woulda never bought a single pair...

Woah... SO now A.Is get Foams/Js price tags too...

There are 2 differnet leathers. The upper is just tumbled, but they're both still real leather. You can see the pores on the toe and if you run your finger over it it creases and wrinkles like nice leather does. Nothing on here is plastic, but you're entitled to your opinion. Out of curiosity, do you actually own an original pair of answer 4s?

Copped these for close to retail. I just need to find part 1's and I'll be good.

i feel you on buying 4 pairs and getting dissapointed more and more...

but.. i start to like my pair more and more. first thing was that they had to be broken in(maybe 2-3 good runs), but the biggest difference was when I ripped out that thin,cheap insole. I get it, it is cool to have it look like the original, but it does not perform at all. It doesnt even cover the arch of the foot, and is way to thin to give any good responsive feel. For comparison the original looked like this:

Reebok had these shock pad insoles up until the iiv's i think. And I was lucky enough to find one in an old pair of v's. Put em in and it made the shoes feel alot better. My guess is that any good insole will do though...
